Bad advertisement simulator 1/5
There's a weird bug where I can see bus schedules between all my favorite advertisements
As near useless as makes no difference. I would give it zero stars if that were possible 1/5
9 times out of ten, when I want to use your app, it claims WMATA is down so you cannot display anything.
1) You *could* display the schedule times but you don't even do that.
2) Usually when you say it's down the WMATA website is in fact up and working just fine. I have no idea why you can't access it; maybe you need a better network connection?
Works fine 4/5
Good app; data sometimes flaky 4/5
Metro shows you when buses and trains are arriving using realtime data. It also provides schedule data. I use it whenever I take the Metro; it is very helpful but sometimes frustrating.
Pros: very helpful for your current location or seeing where routes stop; alerts can be set as notifications — you know right away about rail and bus delays
Cons: sometimes realtime data does not get updated; difficult to determine where to get off if you are not familiar with D.C.
Lacks: interface for WMATA.com's "Trip Planner" feature
Works for Me 4/5
Works pretty well overall. I think some of the "flaws" cited by other reviewers are really the fault of Metro not the app. I've cross checked the app against Metro's own real time predictor (on Metro's web site) and they generally match up. Some buses don't have their GPS trackers on so don't get picked up. And Next Train is extremely flawed and often gives wrong or no info in the stations.
Consistently Inconsistent 1/5
By Inspectors Inc.
Bus and train times are never in sync. Roll the dice and cross your fingers with this app!
I like the app it comes in handy a lot. Only problem I have is sometimes a bus could be about to come, but real time doesn't show it on the app so you'll end up missing it. Unless you go to buseta.com that'll tell you the real time.
Okay but just needs work 3/5

Love the real time tab but sometimes a bus that's coming on it's scheduled time does not show up in real time.
Also and quite frequently, it gives the "wmta offline and unable to provide data" message.
By Someone in the world 194
Often accurate but often has "outrageous" at the most inconvenient times. Happens about 2 a week
Ruined by full-screen ads 2/5
Full-screen, uncloseable ads are not the right way to monetize this app. They can pop up at the worst times, when you're in a hurry and trying to see where the trains are.
The app generally functions well, but needs to change the way it does ads.
Solid app 5/5
This my go-to app for D.C. buses and the metro. Definitely a time saver.
Solid app 4/5
By Commissar Jane
It has some timing issues(Buses will display as being one minute away for as many as five minutes) but that's preferable to the alternative. The full screen ads are annoying, but easily x'd out of.
Pretty accurate! Use location for nearby stops 3/5
I use this app to plan my trips almost everyday. I love the real time arrival updates.
Review for metro app 4/5
This is a very good app. I've recommended it to others and they too love it. When it snows, rain or is very cold it does not work very well, which is understandable because the phone does not work so well at these times either. Overall I am happy with it.
Very helpful 5/5
Love the app.
Really useful for bus routes and times 4/5
Makes it easy to find some bus stops and schedule info. Can save favorite stops.
Would be perfect if it also covered the Ride-On busses that are also in Montgomery County and also use Metro fare smart cards.
Best app I've found 4/5
For the DC metro area this is the best real time estimator I've found. It can be spotty at high traffic stops (read, the ones most needed) during rush hour but I've yet to find a better app.
Reliable & Easy to use 5/5
I have been using this app for a few years. I use it for metro and bus info. I find it very reliable and easy to use. I have favorite stops/destinations flagged so I can go right to that list to get current arrival time of the metro or bus.
Used to be reliable 2/5
I've depended on this app to plan my morning commute. Usually it's pretty reliable, but I've noticed a huge slip recently. It's completely off for S2 at stop at 16th and Sheppard st.
What a wonderful App for residents of the surrounding area and visitors. This app is my go to when traveling public. Arrival time adjusts when train or bus schedule is changes. Would love them to include Montgomery County transportation Ride On schedule it would be a great all in one.
All in one metro train-bus app 5/5
I use it everyday. Great app
Great App 5/5
I love this app! I use it everyday to catch the bus or metro. My only complaint is that once in a while the time to the next bus is inaccurate because they miss a bus.
Good App 5/5
I find this app to be helpful to know when the bus is arriving
Great for bus & metro riders 5/5
By Rin Okumura19
Im recommending this app to friends and to my family would love to see updates thank you.
This App Is The Most Accurate App Of All Time. I Never Miss My Bus
By Hot rob 69
This is sooo awesome and helpful!!!! I only wish you had the 162, 171, 152 buses on this app!!!!
Higher learning curve than necessary 1/5
By feet challenge
Hard to use...inefficient and inconvenient interface. Developers should compare with other similar apps and will know very quickly what they got wrong if they are observant...
Missing Info 2/5
Utterly lacks rush hour yellow line to Franconia.
What is Going On? 3/5
Your "real time" is so in error when the last bus is 6:52 pm and u r saying the bus will be there in 20mins. Are u have a hard time connecting to WMATA? This is nerve wrecking for the past week, get it together. Otherwise it's OK but I need a back up App. Since Xmas your App is behaving wacked plus you schedule listings are really wrong, make the correction. I got your App so that I would not have to carry Metro's bus schedules with me.
Half way working 2/5
By Kingstowne fella
App does not provide train departure information for End Stations... Why ??? So if I live near an end stations I have to go into the WMATA website? Doesn't that defeat the purpose of the app? This app is a reflection of their lack of forward thinking.
So sad !
Needs update 3/5
App is fine but no update yet on the new DC Circulator Route - National Mall
No info on silver line until falls E Falls Church 1/5
Not helpful for train riders west of falls church
Someone that uses this app often 5/5
Very accurate 💯 great app 👍🏾
Obnoxious full page ads 2/5
By Great until ads
Ads are beyond reasonable, if selling an ad free version of an app whose purpose is to sell you another service is ever reasonable. There are the normal small ads on the main page that make it slow to load. Then, if you leave it unattended for a minute or so, a full page ad pops up. It includes more stops and I like that it shows you the schedule as well as real time. It's no more accurate than the earlier version and not really worth switching.
Big help! 3/5
UPDATE!!! I've always found this app helpful until this recent update. Now the ads are the WORST!! They cover pop up at the most inconvenient times, and far too frequently - and they cover the ENTIRE SCREEN!! I can't even select all my search parameters before one pops up, followed by another each and every time I switch screens!! I'm looking for another app!
Helpful & Reliable 4/5
Is pretty much all I have to say!
Love it, just missing trip planner 4/5
Great app with complete info about public transport in DC. Would give it 5 stars if it had a trip planner (if it has one haven't found it).
I like it! 5/5
Really good app! Always pretty accurate. I wish you could rename/nickname favorite stations though. I love the "nearby" feature--that's always how I decide whether to take the bus home or take an uber.
Great App 4/5
It's very useful & great app if you know the buses your route around. Certain buses it doesn't show their arrivals thou wmata does.
Removes the guessing 4/5
It removes the guessing of when the next bus or train is coming. I also like being able to find buses near wherever I am.
Don't bother 1/5
Just like everything associated with DC's metro system, this app is horrible. Regularly tracks buses that never show up.
Really helpful 5/5
I live at the Shady Grove end of the red line and don't think I could have managed to survive the various recent delays without this app. It often has train info not available on the station screens. And being able to access alerts makes it easy to plan my time. I find the app comfortable and easy to use.
Very accurate and useful app 5/5
This app is very useful for getting DC metro rail times. It is quite accurate and very handy for everyday commute.
I am, generally, pleased with the app.
Finally a good DC metro app! 5/5
This is my 3rd attempt at finding a transit app that is easy to use and doesn't crash. Very well designed and intuitive! Definitely a keeper!
I love this app, it's very accurate & helpful.
The app works 2/5
It doesn't crash so it automatically gets another star. That's about the only good thing about it though. Doesn't show arrival/departing times for any metro stops. To the creator; Take a look at the CalTrain app. That's how it should be done.
Terrible, Shockingly basic 1/5
Lack of a trip planner is absurd, the app is effectively useless for tourists. Next bus crashes frequently.
This App is very unreliable early in the morning 4/5
We too have this problem with the Washington DC bus display arrivals in this app -- usually early in the mornings, it simply will not work and just keeps searching and searching.
DC metro app 5/5
Works perfectly for me every day very useful app
